topher reviewed Avant Garde Patisserie
I've driven by a few times en route to Rosalie and I'm always captured by the dominance of the black logo and facade out front. I visited for the first time yesterday and felt it deserved the time to set-up a 'first review'. The service was responsive and friendly and their was even a bit of banter between the FOH and BOH staff and a bit of laughter which is great to see. The coffee was great - Veneziano Estate most likely - ordered my usual triple espresso. It came out quickly and tasted just right. Ordered a croissant too, it took a little longer but worth the wait. I overheard the owner talk to a rep about how everything is made from scratch on site and I'd only wished I'd purchased a pie for lunch on the road. Absolutely worth a revisit, if not for the coffee, for the mouth-watering pastries.
